Re: Star Studded line in Kooyong Classic

I'm going to go and ask Radek Stepanek to sign my lips and watch how he reacts.

David Nalbandian /.\ Marcos Baghdatis /.\ Juan Martin Del Potro /.\ Alejandro Falla /.\ Bernard Tomic /.\ Gustavo Kuerton /.\
/.\Roger Federer /.\

Oct/Nov 2007: There was a time in history when the quality of a tennis player was determined by how many games he won off David Nalbandian.

Sorry

They should make the Kooyong Classic an ATP event & they can use it to trial the RR format
...
Every year I`m amazed how Kooyong manages to pull bigger names than Sydney, Auckland, Chennai, Adelaide & Doha combined ...
>> This year the field was stronger than last year`s TMC & 2007 looks like being another ripper, pearler, bottler

PS. Hewitt never plays there because he prefers to win the Sydney event as a fair dinkum warmup for AO~>> though it probably tires him too much leading into his home GS

Because it is Kooyong, an exhibition, not an ATP event

It's really a great field. I'm definitely thinking of going...

Re: Star Studded line in Kooyong Classic

Good to know the field for Kooyong. It just makes going to the qualies more attractive.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Star Studded line in Kooyong Classic

that's an amazing field. Blake should be there instead of Radek though, but hey it's up to the tournament directors

Nadal - Blake - Dimitrov - Del Potro - Isner - Fish - Haase

Gonzo said to chilean press that he would like to play in Kooyong

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

They love him in Auckland.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Star Studded line in Kooyong Classic

I MAY go. Depends on whether I can get my rostered day off switched from the Tuesday to the Wednesday. My holidays officially start on the Thursday for the qualies. I would never go to a day of Kooyong ahead of a day of qualies.
